Taylor Swift on Thursday told how a 'drunk' local radio DJ groped her bare backside after lifting her skirt and leaving his hand 'latched' on.'He lifted my skirt and grabbed my bare ass cheek,' Swift told the jury in her civil trial.'It was a definite grab, not jostling.'In day four of her federal trial the 27-year old singer repeatedly told jurors from the stand over and over again how former KYGO radio DJ, David Mueller, 55, intentionally grabbed her at a meet and greet in Denver, CO in June 2013.
When asked by Mueller's attorney about the alleged incident of Mueller grabbing Taylor's butt, she replied that she saw Mueller grab her 'ass.'Pressed by Mueller's attorney on whether or not Mueller grabbed Taylor's on the outside of her skirt or the inside of her skirt, she said she didn't know.'He was touching her,' she said.
The court was due to resume on Friday, when Swift's mother could continue her evidence, after it was cut short Thursday for because of sickness.
It made me question why I taught her to be so polite in that moment.'Andrea explained that she and other members of Swift's management team chose not to call police because they wanted to keep the incident private and did not want her to have to 'endlessly relive' the moment.
The 59-year-old added: 'I did not want her to have to live through endless memes and gifs and anything else tabloid media or internet trolls would be able to come up with; making her relive this awful moment over and over again.''We wanted to keep this private but we did not want to let him get away with it.'She smiled as she talked about Swift's 'sweet' upbringing on a farm in Reading, Pennsylvania, but became visibly angry when Mueller's lawyer asked her if her son Austin had ever been accused of sexual assault.
In closing remarks, he said: 'I'm here to prove that I'm innocent.
I had a good reputation in radio and I would like to get it back.'Under questioning from Swift's lawyer Douglas Baldridge, he said he was no longer looking for a million award but instead wanted to restore his name and resume his career in radio.
The former radio host added: 'It's a humiliating experience to be accused of something that despicable.'The trial is the final act in a long-running legal saga that began in September 2015 when Mueller filed suit claiming Swift had lied about being groped and had got him fired.
Swift countersued the following month, writing in her complaint that she had 'never been so certain of anything in my life'.
Watched by her daughter and her husband Scott, Andrea turned towards Mueller and said: 'Absolutely not.'Asked who had assaulted Swift, Andrea replied: 'David Mueller did.' Taylor Swift's mother Andrea (seen above in a court sketch from Wednesday's hearing) said she was left upset to the point where she wanted to 'vomit and cry at the same time' after being told her daughter had allegedly been groped at a concert.
